Mini Photo Album
mini photo album
This mini photo album marks the beginning of my mini album mission where I have set a goal to use up at least half of the 500 plus photos that I have before I am allowed to print any
more...yeah right! I can only dream. So far I have used 4 photos in this album.
I made a 3"x5" accordion mini album using one sheet of bazzill cardstock. In total it had only 6 inner pages. Because each page was so narrow
I had to either crop my photos quite small or let them span a couple of pages so that they could keep their size.
I used photos from a set of pics that we took of akw playing in the backyard with her bucket and a whole heap of mud. I touched up the photos with Photoshop and played with some of the effects to achieve a funky look on the black and white pic, check out how the red bucket stands out. I kept the embellisments to a minimum - buttons, some ribbon and patterned paper or cardstock.
The front cover is made from a couple of chipboard pieces that I covered with patterned paper. A girl and a red bucket. The paper is a really old Daisy D print. I used a small circle punch to get the round photo of akw and her red bucket.
HOT Mini album Tip
Instead of folding the photos where they will be at the joining part of the album I had to cut the photos in half first and then place them on their pages with a small gap between them to allow the pages to close properly.
